Nadine Van der Velde,
I saw this film as part of the curriculum at a Film School I was attending. It was horrible. It concerns a couple who spend a weekend at the house of a writer named Daniel Kingsgate. While the actors did their best, it was the script and the direction that destroyed this film. I am not an easy person to bore, and I usually don't like to call anything "boring" but it is the only word I can use here. The plot was simple enough, but I simply didn't care about it. It was an attempt at artiness I guess. Not once did I ever feel engaged in the film. Not the cinematography, the editing, the acting, or the plot had any redeeming factors. You couldn't help but get the sense that all involved WANTED to make a good movie, but really just didn't know how. Christopher Plummer is in this and he is the best thing in the movie. If you like his work......
